MFP Sketch w/a Twist "Wild West" Happy Birthday

Welcome to challenge 15 @ Mark's Finest Paper Speedy TV
MFP Speedy TV
I am guest designer for one of their weekly challenges: they have several so check them out!
Wild West Stamp Set   I stamped the image on Crumb cake with black stazon.  I lightly filled in some color with pencils.  I took some Tim Holtz distress ink and sponged around the edges and the whole thing.  The twist was to add buttons.  I had a chipboard tag -I glued Tim Holtz papers and sanded around the edges and then sponged distress ink. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment with black and added the buttons.  My ribbon is from Really Reasonable ribbon.  It grounds my image to the "road".  This has been a favorite stamp set ever since I got it. I didn't have a lot for men and this works perfect.  Please join us this week-you could win a prize!  Jump on over & see what Karen Letchworth has done for inspiration.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
